The Book that Redefines Conversion Optimization: You Should Test That!

conversion optimization book cover

I’m excited to announce that my new book is now shipping from Amazon! You Should Test That: Conversion Optimization for More Leads, Sales and Revenue or The Art and Science of Optimized Marketing is now available!

It may be the longest book title ever, but hopefully it makes sense when you see the cover design. You can simply call it You Should Test That!

I’d like to share some of the background and what I hope the book to achieve.

Or, if you’d rather not read the whole story, you can skip to the book’s website for the overview and free chapter download.

On The Road Again

Internet Marketing Conference Keynote Speaker

I never thought I’d be called a road warrior, but looking at my calendar for the next 3 months it looks as though a good home cooked meal will be a rare commodity. I’ll be in San Francisco, Seattle, London, Helsinki, Berlin, Frankfurt, back to Vancouver, then off to Florida, Vegas, and Santa Clara. Whew!
